Production has resumed and since 12 October has averaged 20 200 bpd of oil, whilst normal start up issues are being addressed.
Chris Bruijnzeels, President and CEO of ShaMaran, commented: “The current situation in Kurdistan is challenging. However, we are maintaining normal operations and continue to work towards reaching the facilities' design capacity of 30 000 boe/d.”
